Forecast Pro Unlimited

Forecast Pro Unlimited is a versatile forecasting solution designed for larger-scale forecasting jobs, collaborative forecasting, working with complex hierarchies, maintaining multiple forecast overrides, documenting your forecasting sessions and integrating with other systems.

With Forecast Pro Unlimited, forecasting thousands of SKU's is as easy as selecting a data file and clicking the forecast icon. With a few additional clicks of the mouse, you can graph the results, view forecast reports, make judgmental overrides and save the results.

Create Accurate Forecasts Automatically

Forecast Pro Unlimited’s Expert Selection mode analyzes each item and selects the appropriate forecasting method automatically. If you prefer to specify the forecasting approach, Forecast Pro Unlimited provides a complete range of forecasting methods and all the diagnostic tools you need.

Add Your Judgment and Collaborate With Others

Incorporating business knowledge is often essential to establish the final forecast. Forecast Pro Unlimited's override facility allows you to adjust the statistical forecasts in a spreadsheet-like display which shows both the historical data and forecasted values. You can adjust single points, ranges or totals, using percentages, increments or by simply entering new values. If you've defined a multiple-level hierarchy, adjusting a value at any given level will automatically adjust all appropriate levels.

Working with colleagues can also improve the forecasting process. Using up to ten customizable override rows and handy comment fields, you can easily collaborate with your colleagues and document your changes to foster a truly collaborative forecasting process.

Manage and Review Forecasts Efficiently
Using the powerful combination of Pareto analysis (ABC classifications) and report filtering, you can streamline your forecast review process and save time. Forecast Pro Unlimited’s automated Pareto analysis gives you the flexibility to assign ABC classifications to the items you are forecasting in a number of ways based on volume (either historical or forecasted) or series count. Further, you determine at which level of the hierarchy to assign ABC classifications and which periods to analyze.

Consolidate Your Team’s Forecasts
Forecast Pro TRAC allows you to break large forecasting projects into smaller pieces that can be worked on separately and then reassembled into consolidated forecasts. For example, if three demand planners are responsible for forecasting three different geographical territories, they can work on their forecasts separately; after they’re done, their consolidated forecast can be viewed and further manipulated.

Integrate Smoothly with Other Systems

Integrating Forecast Pro Unlimited with your existing software systems is very straightforward. You can import data in a variety of flexible, easy-to-create formats including Excel spreadsheets, text files and ODBC. You can also customize the content and format of the output. Whether you need a flat file to feed your ERP system, a spreadsheet for a colleague or a presentation-quality report to pass around the board room, Forecast Pro Unlimited's flexibility makes it simple to get the information you need.

Formalize Your Forecasting Process

Most forecasts need to be updated on a regular basis (often weekly or monthly). Forecast Pro Unlimited allows you to save and restore your forecasting sessions including the forecasting models used, the forecast overrides and their associated comments, and all of your reporting options. Returning to your forecasting session at a later date to continue your work, updating your forecasts when new data become available and sharing your work with colleagues—it's all a breeze with Forecast Pro Unlimited.

Forecast Pro Unlimited lays a solid foundation for a well-defined forecasting process by providing:

  • a consistent, objective approach to analyzing historical data;
  • documented visibility into forecast adjustments; and
  • a sustainable forecasting system that can be easily transferred to new team members.
